The arithmetic of exams and other stories

The arithmetic of exams: given 4 scriptbooks for each of 247 students, to be split up into 6 piles, to be divided among 7 markers (and there's also currently an seventh pile for People Who Didn't Read The Instructions), how much sanity will one person retain by the end of the week?

I am wearing (for the first time, because I think I bought it in last year's end of summer sales) a skirt which folds away into its own pocket. I'm a sucker for gimmicks. But it's also pretty, fits reasonably well, and is made of thin quick-drying material which will pack well even if I don't master the pocket trick - so I think the gimmickry is OK.

I'm also lying on the grass in the sunshine. Wireless is a wonderful thing :)

Having spent last night and this morning doing things which served no useful purpose (except possibly relaxation, but I don't have time for that), I think I need a real to-do list of the 'start at the beginning and keep going until you get to the end' type. Things like tomorrow's trip practice and next weekend's adventure need my attention, and a lot of other things want it.
